Recap: Cavaliers 108, Bulls 94 (Or “Oh no, there goes Thibodeau. Go go Mozilla.”)

“Mozilla”

With deep sunken eyes like a giant basset hound
Mozilla pulls all the rebounds down

Helpless Derrick Rose, in so much pain
Stays clear of the paint, cause it’s Moz’s domain

You put up a shot and he throws it back down
In St. Petersburg, he turns ladies frowns upside down

Oh no, they say he’s got to go go go Mozilla
Oh no, there goes Thibodeau go go Mozilla

Mozilla watches again and again
His highlight plays on ESPN
Mozilla!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all our readers! Today is Festivus. As fans, we definitely don’t have as many grievances to air this year. We all got a big present under our tree when LeBron returned to Cleveland, and a slew of new players came with him. With the Cavs fielding a competitive team for the first time in four years, it’s a lot easier to be a Cavs fan this year like it has been in years past. Heck, we even get a Christmas day game! We seem to spend every game recap airing our grievances (especially in the losses), so regardless of how good or bad the Cavs are on the court, I always like to take this time of year to point out what a solid group of guys the Cavs have in their locker room. The Cavs organization has done a great job of fielding a team of young men who serve as admirable ambassadors for the city of Cleveland and Northeast Ohio.

I point you to the Cavaliers in the Community page for a list of all the programs the Cavs and their players support. Santa, it’s obvious that these Cavs inhabit the “Nice List.” Here’s what we’re asking you to bring them this Chrstmas. It’s a nice way to say thank you for all the joy that the entire Cavaliers family brings us throughout the year.

Merry Christmas and happy holidays, everybody, from all of us here at Cavs the Blog. Monday was Festivus, the day for the traditional airing of grievances. We spent most of the last two recaps gathered around the Festivus pole, airing those grievances. Now it’s time to move on to more edifying holiday traditions. While we have spent a good bit of time complaining about the Cavs’ play this year, we sometimes forget how lucky we are to have a pretty decent group of guys representing our team and the city of Cleveland.

The team presents the Cavaliers as a force for positivity in the Cleveland community. Just check out the Cavaliers in the Community page. Furthermore, something that seems to get lost in the way the media covers players and teams, is that these guys are people.  They are not a collection of stats and “measurables.” In researching for this project, it’s incredibly disappointing to realize how little information there is that doesn’t have to do with points, assists, or rebounds. But we’ve done our best to find it!

So in the spirit of the season, we present the 2013 Cavaliers’ team wish list: the list of things we asked Santa to bring the Cavaliers.  Lets hope they’re sitting under the tree come Christmas morning!
